Wedding Information

  • Wedding Date
    April 11, 2014
  • Wedding Location
    Akumal Beach Resort
  1. I am rapdily approaching my wedding date of 4/12/14 and as of last week, everything has changed from what was corresponded through email between myself and the wedding department, the reservation department, and the wedding coordinator manager. This has been nothing but a nightmare the last week and I feel as if my hands are tied. I secured my wedding date with them almost a year ago and have made two different deposits after arrangements were discussed such as menu, venue location, and DJ services. Now that the date is approaching, they are charging me extra (almost double) for certain services and changing my whole menu selection. After serveral phone calls and emails back and forth with the wedding department, they are saying I can take my wedding somewhere else if I dont want to continue with there newly founded agreements. They are going to charge all of the guests rooms way in advance because of their error in over booking the resort and asking for my authorization to do so. Everything in an email that I have "agreed" to is still standing but they will not honor any email agreements or phone conversations on their end. I would love to cancel the whole event and move it somewhere else but this is almost impossible considering the season and that my wedding is only TWO weeks away. Can anyone help me out there!!!!???? I am desperate.
  2. Can you give me any contact information on this? I was told I could use the hotels equipment and now 20 days before my wedding, they are saying it will be occupied. OMG this has been one stressful process. Can anyone help me!!!!

Click that and then click "upload file" in the pop-up box. Hope that makes sense! It is so weird but I dont see any of that stuff. Maybe my computer is acting up.

    Hair and make-up artist??

    Quote:Originally Posted by bp19303 I recently got back from my wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico. I was super nervous about using a makeup artist/hair stylist who I did not know personally but am so happy I used Sara and her team! She was so sweet from the first day that I emailed her and emailed back super quickly. I showed her a few pictures of what I liked and she did all of my bridesmaids first and then me! All of my girls looked great and their makeup showed up wonderfully in pictures! I told her I wanted a dramatic look (not natural like most brides) and she did exactly that! My eyes stood out in all of the pictures and it all looked wonderful thanks to her and her team. She spent a lot of time making sure everything looked perfect and it was nice knowing that she really cared about how everyone looked. My sister originally wasn't going to get her makeup done but Sara didn't want her to not stand out in pictures with the rest of the bridesmaids, so she put some fake lashes on her and did some eye makeup quickly. This was so sweet of her to do and shows how much she loves her job and wants to make everyone happy. I would not hesitate to use her team again and would recommend her to anyone! And how was the staying power? Did she charge a lot of money?

Would you mind sending me pics of your makeup? I would love to see her work as I am looking for a really dramatic type of makeup.

    No, its really cheap. A non stop flight can be like 500$ or even cheaper if you book your hotel and flight together.
  12. I just reached 150!!!!! EEEEKKKKK Hip Hip HOOORRRAAAYYY
  13. Yeah, when I read about that I was so scared. I hate needles!
  14. I cant believe no one has posted anything about this resort in a very long time. I have been looking at this location as my possible backup wedding spot. The WC has been really good about responding through email and the reviews on Tripadvisor seem promising. They sent me pics of the reception site which is under like a tiki area...and it was set up pretty nice. You wouldn't have to rent the dance floor since the space is perfect for that already. If anyone is interested, you can PM me and I can send you pics of the area. I like how it is affordable for the guests and there are many things to do around the area. The 1 hr drive from the airport is a bummer but once you are there it would be like paradise. Also, the beach location is protected since sea turtles are swimming constantly. It would make for some gorgeous pictures! Not too touristy and seems very laid back.
